Tow bar allows you to tow the glider by a car equipped with the ISO-50 ball towing connection. We have elegant solution both for light or heavy gliders. For heavy gliders we consider: gliders with water ballast with MTOW over 525kg, twoseaters, open class, gliders with turbo or selflauncher engine.

equipment in use 41 The system intended for heavy gliders doesn´t carry the tail of the glider in the air, it only pulls/pushes and steers the direction, the glider rides on the tail dolly. The towing bar connects to the taildolly by robust steel tube hinge with closing lock. To mount/dismount the towing bar, simply revolve it up to the angle of 45° and pull out from the tail dolly hinge.

 

The towing bar is telescopic and can be shortened for transport very quickly and easily. Simply push the lock button and push together. The towing bar is mainly made of anodised aluminium, the highly stressed parts are made of zinc-galvanised steel. Wing dolly has to be modified before use - simply install the connecting adaptor with hinge tube between the tail dolly body and castor wheel. This part is, of course, shipped with the bar and is included in the price. The dimensions meet the standardised dimensions of the wheel brackets, so the prepared holes fit for all factory delivered tail dollies automatically.

We have delivered many tow bars of this type to ourequipment in use 36 customers since 2007, they are more and more popular due to the lightweight design and easy connection to the glider (you don´t have to lift the tail of heavy gliders).
